Welcome

Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgrounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism. The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford. We hope you will join us.

Our UU Community

Until spring when we can gather outdoors or safely distanced in our beautiful but unheated church again, there are many options each Sunday for connecting with the UU community. Here are a few of them:

Close to home-

First Universalist Society of Hartland VT – Worship service every Sunday at 10 via Zoom or telephone

Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Upper Valley – Worship service every Sunday at 10 via Zoom. Other activities also available via Zoom during the week.

North Universalist Chapel Society in Woodstock – Worship service every Sunday at 10 via Facebook Live.

Another easy to connect with congregation who has welcomed our members who wish to use this time to branch out a bit more-

Arlington Street Church – Worship service every Sunday at 11 via Zoom or telephone. Other activities also available during the week.

There are many more to check out in this list provided by the UUA.

For those who would like to use this time for quiet individual reflection, the UU website offers many resources to explore such as this searchable on-line library.

 

Guest at Your Table

Many things will be different this holiday season but not everything has to be. Even though we won’t be in church to pick up and turn in our Guest at Your Table boxes, we can still participate. Consider putting another type of cup or dish on your table to collect your change to support the important work of the UU Service Committee around the world. Our help is needed more now than ever with fires, floods, droughts and the pandemic.
Here is how to send in your donations:
